The Stewards authorised the following substitutions of riders at this meeting:

243B Garry Flood Landscaping (M) H'cap H'dle

P.T. Enright, rider of Field Exhibition trained by Liam Casey, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount never travelled.

The Stewards requested a report from Paul Nolan, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Miss Sassie, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge had suffered wind problems in the past and ran very prominent on his last run before fading quickly. He further added that a change in tactics to settle his charge out the back and ride a more patient race had benefitted his charge and he felt that this had brought about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the content of the report.
